Cytoskeleton: Structure, Dynamics, Function and Disease

This book provides new insights into the structure-functional features, dynamics, and cytoskeleton's relationship to diseases. The cytoskeleton is a highly dynamic intracellular platform constituted by a three-dimensional network of proteins responsible for key cellular roles as structure and shape, cell growth and development, and offering to the cell with "motility" that being the ability of the entire cell to move and for material...

Assessing the Value of Research in the Chemical Sciences

This book captures the messages from a workshop that brought together research managers from government, industry, and academia to review and discuss the mechanisms that have been proposed or used to assess the value of chemical research. The workshop focused on the assessment procedures that have been or will be established within the various organizations that carry out or fund research activities, with particular attention to the ...

Chemistry and the Environment

As evidenced by the chapters within this volume, the field of chemical pedagogy is diverse. Models employed by authors of these chapters include guided-inquiry learning, peer-mentoring, service learning opportunities, project-based exercises, flipped classrooms, and studies-abroad. While these approaches differ, the one common thread is the use of environmental topics to capture the attention of students who then use chemistry concep...

Recent Advances in Disinfection By-Products

The formation, control, and health effects of DBPs in drinking water are issues of international concern because of the health effects (e.g., bladder cancer and potential adverse reproductive-development impacts) associated with exposure to certain DBPs. As a result, many countries, as well as the World Health Organization, have regulations and/or guidelines on acceptable concentrations of DBPs in water. In recent years, DBP research...
